Every person’s body is different. Every person has unique concerns. That’s why we have multiple procedures to help our patients reach their body sculpting goals. It is not realistic to think that one procedure will be the most effective for every individual interested in body sculpting.
We offer two amazing procedures that can help you reach your goals: SculpSure(™) and SlimLipo(R). Don’t worry, we’ll explain the difference and recommend the option that fits your needs best.
SlimLipo- Laser Liposuction
The ideal candidate for SlimLipo is not significantly overweight, but has trouble areas where it is difficult to get rid of accumulated fat deposits.
SlimLipo is an ideal treatment for those who seek to eliminate fat from certain areas of the body but may be intimidated by traditional liposuction, as the procedu , produces quicker results and recovery, and only requires local anesthesia. The procedure is ideal for many areas of the body: abdomen, back, buttocks, jowls, neck, love handles, male chest, thighs, and upper arms.
The laser melts fat and then removes it with gentle suction, tightening the surrounding skin through soft tissue coagulation, firming and contouring. The procedure usually only takes one session for optimal results.
The procedure takes 1-2 hours and some of our patients report that they return back to work the next day!
You will experience results within a week, and will continue to see improvements for 3-6 months.
SculpSure is perfect for individuals that desire a non-invasive procedure and have a BMI of 30% or less. The FDA has approved SculpSure™ for more trouble spots like love handles, back, inner thighs, outer thighs, buttocks, and upper arms that are still an issue even after diet and exercise. In fact, SculpSure™ can be applied to almost any body part as determined by Dr. Barad.
The hyperthermic action of SculpSure™ heats your fat cells, causing them to detach from your inner tissues. Once they’ve been removed, the body considers them unnecessary tissue and will filter them through your body just as they would any other loose tissue or particles
The procedure only takes 25 minutes and the procedure is completely noninvasive and you can return back to work immediately.
Results can be seen starting at 6 weeks, with optimal results around 12 weeks.
